Billboard Unveiling: August 2, 5pm (Reception for Carving Through Borders Exhibition at 7pm)

"Blooming In The Midst of Gentrification" is a collaboration between youth from People Organizing to Demand Environmental & Economic Rights (P.O.D.E.R.), Galeria De La Raza and CultureStrike. The young activists from P.O.D.E.R. collaborated with CultureStrike artists Susa Cortez and Julio Salgado on a billboard that portrayed some of the things they are doing to fight back against gentrification. They specifically wanted to hight light their #PUEBLOTE campaign where P.O.D.E.R. has organized with Mission residents to reclaim public lands for community use based on community planning efforts that bring together the knowledge and experience of neighborhood residents.
